Credit card sector lowered to Market Weight from Overweight at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo cut its rating on the credit card sector to Market Weight from Overweight. The firm noted that the sector's net chargeoffs increased to 3.6% last quarter, representing a four year high. The firm is also worried about slowing receivables growth and increased competition in the space. Despite the downgrade, it continues to recommend Discover (DFS) and Synchrony (SYF). It lowered its price target on Discover to $70 from $80 and cut its price target on Synchrony to $30 from $35. It keeps Market Perform ratings on American Express (AXP) and Capital One (COF).

Wells downgrades Credit Card sector on credit concerns

The analyst keeps Overweight ratings on Synchrony (SYF) and Discover (DFS) and Market Perform ratings on American Express (AXP) and Capital One (COF). Credit trends have recently deteriorated primarily due to weaker underwriting, Harbes tells investors in a research note. The analyst is also concerned about slowing receivables growth following an extended period of acceleration from 2012-2016. He lowered his price target for Synchrony to $30 from $35, for Discover to $70 from $80 and for Capital One to $85 from $88. The analyst keeps an $80 target on American Express.
